Nuclei Far from Stability and Atomic Masses and Fundamental Constants 1992 presents a collection of 200 papers presented at two conferences that were held concurrently. Particular attention is paid to developments in the field of nuclear physics with energetic secondary beams and the increase of precision in the determination of atomic masses. Topics covered include nuclear spectroscopy and nuclear shapes, the heaviest elements, fission and cluster radioactivity, beta decay, coupling constants, neutrino mass, moments and radii, nuclei near the drip line and their structure, atomic masses, nuclear aspects in astrophysics, and experimental developments.
Table of ContentsPapers include: Atomic masses: High precision Penning trap mass spectroscopy of the light ions. Recent achievements in the ETFSI model of nuclear masses, shapes and fission barriers. Nuclear moments and radii: Nuclear radii and moments of rare-earth elements from laser spectroscopy. Revelation of thick neutron skins in nuclei. Nuclei near the drip-lines: Experiments to determine the structure of light neutron-rich nuclei. Influence of the separation energy on the radius of weakly bound systems. Heaviest elements, fission and cluster radioactivity: On the properties and stability of the heaviest nuclei. Nuclear spectroscopy and nuclear shapes: Microscopic description of nuclear spectra, transitions and superdeformation using the Gogny force. Symmetries in nuclei - collective motion from a fermion perspective. Basic investigations in beta decay: The decay of the neutron. Nuclear aspects on astrophysics: Unstable nuclei in astrophysics. Incompressibility of neutron-rich nuclear matter in collapsed stars. Experimental developments: Radioactive ion-beams post-accelerated to low and medium energies.
